Happy Thanksgiving! I thought today would be the ideal time to talk about The Mosley Cabin that is a central feature of a new listing I have at 38 Beacon Hill Lane, Creve Coeur, MO 63141. The Mosley Cabin was built around 1860 on an 80 acre land grant. The family initially built a 1-room cabin and then added a second with a "dog-run" in-between.
Here are some examples of Dog-Run or Dog-Trot Cabins that I found on the web and they are not historic pictures of the Mosley Cabin.
Here is what this home looks like now.
I am off to our farm for Thanksgiving. I hope everyone has a happy one. There is Banana Cranberry Walnut Bread in the oven and my appetizers are made. Come back tomorrow and I will share the recipes and pictures.
